Excerpt from I Can See You

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I had a tough time deciding which book to do an excerpt from today! I just finished books 1 and 2 of Michael Leese’s Jonathan Roper Investigates series. I quite enjoyed these books, with a team made up of neurotypical police detective Brian Hooley and autistic consultant Johnathan Roper. My excerpt is from book 2, I Can See You.

“Good idea. I was so busy talking to you that I hadn’t realized how hungry I was.” He rushed out of the door, moving quickly. He’d always been fast but GCHQ seemed to have turbo-charged him. “When we get back here I want to tell you about what I’ve been working on. I think there is a plot to kill a lot of world leaders.”
Michael Leese, I Can See You

I Can See You

SOME PUZZLES ARE DEADLY.

It was an idea that was full of hope. But it turned into a nightmare. And now a serial killer wants to test himself against one of Scotland Yard’s most unique investigators.

Jonathan Roper is a key player in the elite Special Investigations Unit. His autism, and a relentless drive, has given him an extraordinary range of skills which make him a formidable detective.

His reputation has grown to the point where he has been invited to join the digital fight against terror – but that’s not working out, as it means losing contact with his boss, Chief Inspector Brian Hooley. The pair formed a powerful bond while bringing down a gang of ruthless mercenaries running riot in London.

Now events are throwing them back together, and soon they realise that this new investigation is completely personal. The enemy has them in his sights and wants to kill.

Despite the very real tensions Roper can’t resist once again turning his critical eye on the long suffering Hooley. Rarely can one man have come under so much pressure for his lifestyle choices.

Their special relationship provides a stream of genuine humour at the heart of what is a dark, psychological thriller.
